Upscaled Hot Wheels Finish Gate for use with two-lane pinewood derby


Basically printed with raft and exterior support for outside frame, inside flag and hit pieces should have probably been printed without rafting, I kept it on for extra structure...but ended up adding another 1/16" to the support structure to help this part out in future prints.

Update - I need to swap out the STL files, but tweaked the design for the better and it ran flawlessly for about 160 races this past weekend. We had about 3 ties that had to go to video, but the flag dropped on the winner 100% of the time...even with close calls

Newer files are titled FinishGate2... There is even a checkerd flag that I have two files that can be merged on the dual extruder...though I was never able to get mine to printer properly.

I have added my messy sketchup file for those that might want to do some tweakage.
